Jackson County legislators seek Statehouse interns for 2024 session


Local lawmakers are seeking interns to join them at the Statehouse during the 2024 legislative session.

District 69 Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, said House interns will be paid $900 biweekly as they work in downtown Indianapolis during the session, which starts in January and ends mid-March.

“This is an excellent opportunity, and the Statehouse is a great place to develop skills and build lifelong connections,” Lucas said. “Being an intern with us is more than just a part-time position. It’s a transformational learning experience where students can launch their careers.”

State District 62 Rep. Dave Hall, R-Norman, said the full-time internships are open to college students and recent graduates of all majors.

“House interns come from all walks of life and areas of study,” Hall said. “Whether they’re assisting constituents, helping with media relations or working on policy, they’ll get real-world training they can use in any career.”

The internships also include free parking, career and professional development assistance, enrollment access to an Indiana government class and opportunities to earn academic credits. Interns also are eligible to apply for a $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.

“We’ve had many interns use this program as a steppingstone to successful jobs in both the public and private sectors,” State District 65 Rep. Chris May, R-Bedford, said. “With a limited number of available positions, interested students shouldn’t wait to apply.”

Students can apply for internships in a variety of departments related to their field of study, including legislative operations, policy and communications and media relations.

Applications are available online at indianahouserepublicans.com/internship and are due by Oct. 31.
